Informational Meeting On The Ballot Question to Restore Superior Standards to Massachusetts
Location: Harmony Hall
Address: 1660 Lakeview Avenue, Dracut, Massachusetts
Date: Wednesday, April 6, 2016
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Speakers include: Sandra Stotsky, former senior Associate Commissioner in the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and a speaker from End Common Core MA.
Sandra Stotsky explains the differences between the state’s current standards for MCAS 2.0 and the pre-Common Core standards used for the original MCAS tests. A speaker from End Common Core MA will discuss the ballot question and the “coalition” set up by the MBAE (Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education) and probably funded by the Gates Foundation to discredit the ballot question and discourage YES voters.
YOUR CHILD CAN REFUSE TO TAKE THE PARCC OR MCAS!
